Philosophy for women

June 11, 2017

RPWives, who are your favorite philosophers? Do you find any that pertain to being female and femininity?

Literature is fine too, just nothing written in a modern style.

For example, Machiavelli The Prince would be perfect reading for a masculine man.

GK Chesterton is my all time favourite philosopher. Closely followed by St. Thomas Aquinas, the Angelic Doctor. (In case it's not obvious, I'm Catholic!) The Angelic Doctor writes with more of an objective, back-and-forth question and answer style; is most famous work is probably the Summa Theologica followed closely by the companion Summa Contra Gentiles. But of them are unquestionably theological in nature, but do a great job setting the bedrock of the theological argument on sound philosophy. On the other hand, Chesterton's style is more.. light-hearted, but he has a dry wit paired with a love of the world, and it makes his work both humorous and understandable.

As far as literature goes, everything by Tolkien is super philosophical and expounds greatly on what it means to be feminine. Beren and Luthien is heart-rending and lovely. And, of course, Lord of the Rings is probably the greatest piece of literature of the last 300 years or so.

Personally I have shit reading comprehension compared to many of the other users here. While I took a philosophy class in college.... I don't remember much. I'm all for expanding ones book shelf though. So I may have to do some reading if there are good suggestions.

For a gentle, narrative introduction to a lot of philosophical ideas, I really enjoyed Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder.

I thought of some fiction. For femininity definitely read Little Women.. I recently reread it and I forgot how perfect it is.

Tolkien and Bernard Cornwell are great for both sexes but more so for masculinity. The Little House books. The Witch of Blackbird Pond.

John C. Wright also writes fiction. Science fiction and fantasy, and he writes VERY well. Old school style.

If I think of more I'll edit this as I do.

Anthony Ludovici

"A fearless approach to the truth" — that's how the British writer Anthony M. Ludovici (1882–1971) described his own character.

Throughout his thirty-odd books on subjects as varied as ideal marriage partners, Nietzschean philosophy, private property, the sculptor Rodin, and elitism, the penetrating and well-informed Ludovici always lays his cards on the table. Every page he wrote sparkles with incandescent ideas that stimulate debate.

Virtually alone among Western thinkers, Anthony M. Ludovici unravels the sickness afflicting modern art; argues that men should never have given the vote to women; explains why democracy culminates in anarchy; and discusses the evolutionary ethics that mankind needs for survival in a hostile universe.

I do think 'leviathan' by Thomas Hobbes is very worth reading, but more for like a government/politics, a bit like 'The Prince', but from a different POV.

Not sure if it necessarily counts or not, but "Ishmael" was aleays one of my favorite books. It tackles a lot of ideas, and made me think about a lot of stuff that I didn't normally consider. I disagree with a lot of the points he makes during his argument, but it was really interesting nonetheless. Another good one was Siddhartha.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
